Partner Bambos Tsiattalou comments in the Evening Standard in relation to the news that the SFO have closed their investigation into British American Tobacco after three years.
Bambos’ comments were published in the Evening Standard, 15 January 2021, and can be found here. They were also syndicated for publication in MSN News, Yahoo Finance, London Loves Business, Yahoo Finance Spain, Marseille News and Yahoo Finance France.
“The investigation’s closure brought criticism in London, as it comes on the back of many such cases. Bambos Tsiattalou, partner of Stokoe Partnership Solicitors, said: “Yet another Serious Fraud Office investigation has collapsed. Its investigation into British American Tobacco began over three years ago and it has not been able to build a case strong enough to secure a result in that time.
Better judgement should be exercised before such huge investigations are embarked upon.””
